  •  My conservative relative dismisses any information (8+ / 0-)

    that comes from the "liberal media in the tank for Obama". He won't read anything that comes from the New York Times, etc. and he despises MSNBC. On the other hand, I won't read his links that come from Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, etc., so we're both in a bubble.  He forwards viral emails that I easily debunk, and he's glad for that correction, so his bubble is slightly breached. But years of indoctrination by Rush Limbaugh, FOX, and Glenn Beck have taken their toll on a very intelligent and kind man.

    The spirit of liberty is the spirit which is not too sure that it is right. -- Judge Learned Hand, May 21, 1944
